Facilities

We continue to invest in our campus facilities – £250 million by 2019 – so all our students can maximise their talents today and into the future.

Our Fusion Building, which opened in 2016, embodies our vision of academic Fusion – creating the most stimulating, challenging and rewarding university experience in a world-class learning community.

Featuring collaborative work spaces, independent study areas and research space, as well as flexible seminar rooms, lecture theatres and breakout areas, the building encourages students and staff to interact and engage with their subjects in new ways.

Learning facilities

Our four academic faculties boast state-of-the-art facilities enabling students to build invaluable practical skills using industry-standard equipment.

Media students film in our high-definition, green-screen/motion capture TV studio; paramedics train in our fully functioning ambulance; sports psychologists work in our sports performance laboratory; and forensics students investigate in our crime scene training facility.

As a result, postgraduate study at BU not only extends the depth of your learning, but also enables you to hone real-world skills for the world of work.
